3 Benefits of Barbell Complex HIIT and 3 Samples you can use!

What is the Barbell Complex?

There are very similar to circuit workout. But it is done with barbell exercise. It is the workout that combines 4 to 6 exercises back-to-back for 5 to 10 reps without taking rest in between the exercises. Of course, this is depending on your fitness level. You will not leave the barbell from your hand until all the exercises are done.  You rest for 1-3 minutes and do them again for a number of sets. Hence, the name Barbell Complex!

10 Commandments of Powerlifting by #MarvinInspire

I started Powerlifting at the age of 21 and I was a late bloomer in the fitness arena. That period of time, I do not have a proper coach to guide this journey. A close friend of my, David Liaw was the person who introduces me to powerlifting. My source of learning was from Coach David, Uncle Google, and Sir. Youtube. I literally do not know anything about Powerlifting that I even Squat on the Smith Machine most of the time. It was indeed a bad option to stick to Smith Machine almost every workout. I had the assumption that it was just the same as free weight squat. I learn from my mistake and move forward.

How did I prepare for my first Powerlifting Meet? #8TipsToKnow

Powerlifting

The Kuching Powerlifting Meet was held on the 6 January 2018.  I was inspired by David Liaw who is also my coach.  He was the first one to sign up. After a few weeks thinking about it, I also signed up for it to get the experience.  It was my very first Powerlifting Meet and I need to express my appreciation to David for programming my workout. He came in third in the competition and received the heaviest squat award with 200kg. Congratulation to you!

I managed to deliver a total of 8/9 lifting attempts. My top weight for my squat was 160kg, bench press was 110kg and the deadlift was 205kg.  The top weights gave me a total of 475kg. Overall, I am happy with my first official record.
